This Part lists those immigrant families which have grown to considerable size. These bear a single identifying letter.
This family is unique in that it has both an English and an American Family Recorder. Unfortunately, as far as we presently can determine, the male lines in the American branch have died out, and there is no present record of any other immigration other than the one listed below.
The English Recorder has traced the ancestors of James, the American immigrant, back to John Hulse and Mary Nichols. John was born about 1720. Only one child has been located, and that was a Thomas Hulse. He was baptized in 1740 and married twice. His first wife, who Thomas married in 1760, was Mary Ellison. She may have died shortly after their marriage, as no children are recorded and in 1761 John married second a Phoebe Stephen, and by her had five children. Of these only their son Stephen has been traced. He also married twice. By his first wife Elizabeth he had seven children, and by his second wife Sarah, he had one child, Josiah Hulse (B04/008/002), baptized in 1808, and died in 1887. Josiah also married twice. His first wife was Sarah Oakley, and his second wife was Lucy Birch. All three lived and died in England. Josiah had eleven children, but only James (B05/003/008), Josiah and Sarah's third child, and second son, immigrated that we presently know of. The rest of their children presumably lived and died in England.
First Generation in America
James Hulse (B05/003/008) was born in Wolverhampton, England, on 22 August 1835, and died in Archer, Madison, Idaho, on 21 October 1903. He married three times. His first wife was Ellen Tame. They were married in Salt Lake City, Utah, on 9 November 1867. Ellen, born in Birmigham, England, on 2 September 1837, later died in Archer, Idaho, 21 November 1908. James next married Caroline Davis, and then for the third time married Mary Anne Tame. By Caroline and Ellen James had 13 children. The first five were born in England. The last eight in Utah.

(His brother was in Franklin, Pennsylvania, at the same time). Job's first wife was Jane Peers. As she was reported to have died in 1902, he may have divorced, or abandoned her, and the children, and then went on to Kansas where he reportedly remarried a Margaret Perkins.

This Elisha Hulse we previously had as being son of Johannes Holsaert Clan D.
This was based on the assumption that Hulse families in the NJ/NY area were originally Holsaert.

Meinert/Minert Huls, N01/001/000, was born in 1836 in Hanover, Germany, and died in 1891 in Basco, Illinois. He married Saarke (Sara) Fecht. They came to America in 1872 with five children, the rest being born in Illinois. Nine children have been listed. The 1880 census for Bearcreek Twp., Hancock Co., Illinois, lists him and eight of his children, but the spelling of his children's names in the census does little to help clear up some of the missing dates. For example the census lists a Katie, born 1868, a daughter born 1874, Karl born 1876, but doesn't list Meta (probably married by that time), George M. or Gariat.
Jacob Meinert Huls, N02/001/001, born 1860/62 in Germany, died 6 November 1935, probably on the family farm in Basco, Hamilton Co., Illinois. He married Annke Schmidt and they had nine children (all possibly born in Basco):

WARNING NOTE: There has been recent speculation that Richard may not be the original immigrant. If this turns out to be true, then the first two or three generations may have to be shuffled.
Richard Hulse, R01/001/000, was born about 1640/1645, possibly in England, and died between 4 July and 21 August 1696 in Brookhaven, Long Island, New York. His first wife's name is unknown, but was the mother of his four sons Thomas, Richard, Joseph and John. She died between 1675 and 1680. He then was married for the second time, before 6 June 1681, to Hannah Beardsley (also recorded as Hannah Dayton in the 1692/3 will of Walter Jones who left Richard a portion of his estate.) No issue is known by this latter marriage. Richard first appeared in local records, 21 September 1670, as a witness to the deed for land at Brookhaven sold by Andrew Miller to Richard Smith. Land was granted to him by the town in 1676, but no other record of him has been found until he appeared in the will of Walter Jones when his four children were specifically mentioned.
Please note: Descendants of Johannes Holsaert [Clan D], and the Halse, Halsey and Hulsey families were on Long Island during this same period, and Johannes' descendants, as one example, had already started to change their surname to Hulse. We have already started to speculate that some of the families presently assigned to Clan D, may be part of Clan R.
Thomas Hulse, R02/001/001, was born in 1667. He was married three times. His first wife's last name was Jones, his second wife's first name was Hannah, and his third wife was Ruth Strong. Between his three wives he possibly had at least eight children, of which seven are listed below (all probably born on Long Island):
Thomas Hulse Jr., R03/001/001, born about 1690. The name of his wife is not known, but they reportedly had three children: Stephen R04/001/001; Jesse R04/002/001; and Elizabeth R04/003/001.
Priscilla Hulse, R03/002/001. No further information;
Thomas (?) Hulse R03/004/001, born 1709. This child may belong to some other parent as it seems doubtful that there would be two with the same name. He died in 1747. He married a Ruth and they had two children: Thomas R04/006/004; and Abigail, R04/007/004.
Josiah Hulse, R03/005/001, born 1711, no record of marriage. Reportedly died in Virginia in 1778. No further information;
Selah Hulse, R03/006/001, born 1715, married Mary Tuthill in 1749. He died in 1775. They had two children: David R04/008/006; and Selah R04/009/006.
Ebenezer Hulse, R03/007/001, born 1703, died 1769. He married first Ruth White, and second Anne. By Ruth he had eight children: Jesse R04/010/007; Elizabeth R04/011/007; Stephen R04/012/007; Ruth R04/013/007; Isaac R04/014/007; Peter R04/015/007; Samuel R04/016/007; and Ebenezer R04/017/007.
Joshua Hulse, R03/008/001, born 1706, died 1775. He married Sarah White in 1726. They reportedly had eight children: Silas R04/018/008; Gilbert R04/019/008; Thomas R04/020/008; Justus R04/021/008; Sarah R04/022/008; James White R04023/008; Joshua R04/024/008; and Samuel R04/025/008.
Richard Hulse Jr. R02/002/001, was born in 1669 and died in 1724. He married a Biggs (first name unknown) They had at least four children:
Richard Hulse, 3rd, R03/009/002, born about 1693, married a Helme (first name unknown). They had two children, Henry R04/026/009; and Richard R04/027/009;
Paul Hulse R03/010/002, born 1695, died 1747. Wife's name is unknown. They had four children: Richard R04/028/010; Paul R04/029/010; Jonathan R04/030/010; and Jonah R04/031/010;
Mary Hulse R03/011/002, born 1700 married John Aber in 1717;

Joseph Hulse R02/003/001, born 1675, died before 1749. No record of marriage or of children.
John Edgar Hulse R02/004/001, born 1668, died 1717. He married Anne (last name unknown) and had at least three children:
John Thomas Hulse R03/012/004, born 1706, died 1751. He married Deborah Clark in 1732. They had five children: John R04/032/012; Nehemiah R04/033/012; Joseph R04/034/012; Ann R04/035/012; and Jemima R04/036/012.
Jemima Hulse R03/013/004, born about 1710, married John Case in 1733;
Anne Hulse R03/014/004, born 1715, died 1747. Married David Overton in 1737.
Commentary: The descendants of Richard compose a very large family, and the great bulk of those living in New York State, bearing the surname Hulse, (and now possibly Hulce) descend from his four sons.

CLAN TD – Thomas Hulse (b. 1727) – Deborah Johnston
This Thomas Hulse, and Richard Hulse, we had previously as being sons of Benjamin Holsaert Clan D.
There was no evidence of this other than the long time assumption that all Monmouth Co, New Jersey Hulse’s were originally Holsaert.
The first few generations’ details can be found on the “Clan TD” page, with notes and supporting documents on “Clan TD Documents” page.
Meverrell Hulse V01/001/000, was born about 1630 in England, and died after 1686 in Charles Co., Maryland. He is in St. Mary/Charles County, Maryland by the 22nd of July 1658 as he serves as a bonded servant from 1658 to 1679, when he then claims land under the "Conditions of Plantation". He is reported to have married twice. His first wife may have been Miss Greenfield (first name unknown), the daughter of Thomas Greenfield. Only one son is recorded and that was William W. Hulse V02/001/001. Meverell's second wife may have been Miss Pearle (first name also unknown), the sister or daughter to James and John Pearle.
